ATC Swap July - Bugs

The theme for the Willowing ATC swapsies for July was Bugs!
After discounting the rabbit, I decided to use the stampotique Bee stamp by Jo and the beautiful Dragonfly by Stampers Anonymous - designed by Michelle Ward
I've used lots of distress inks on these two atcs plus a little bit of clear sparkle from a sakura starlight pen on the wings - not sure if you can see that.

Thank for looking,

CC3 - 7 ........shabby chic jewellery box updated with original photo

Painted Industrial meets shabby chic jewellery box!
Over on  Studio L3,  Linda Ledbetter and her wonderful crew (do go and check them out) are sharing their masterpieces for the seventh challenge of The Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 Challenge (CC3), from Tim Holtz's latest publicationIn respect to Tim please don't ask for the technique used; you need to get your own copy :-)
The challenge this time is Painted Industrial technique, which can be found  on page 46. 
I've put my twist on this as I wanted to use this technique but with a different colour. 

Here's a close-up of the top

 This looks like it's a totally different colour but that's the trouble with photographing metal, the photos I took inside looked dull but these ones outside look different colours. I used Salty Ocean and white, just to give you an idea of the true colours. The metal was stretched to the extreme over the stars!

I've just found the original photo of the box!

 The fabulously generous people over at Inspiration Emporium are offering a $50 prize! 

Thanks for looking
